2012 Developed Rear Brake Squeal
 
I have a 2012 wk2 srt and just recently it developed the rear brake squeal. I know that it was a known issue for the wk1 and I was wondering what guys would do to get rid of the squeal or why it was happening. I have done the bedding procedure but it does come back shortly after.

brembo says you need to drive these brakes hard or you will develop glazing which leads to squeal.......
I would swap them with the stoptech pads

Thanks Scott, I will have to look into those then, and tell the wife she needs to drive it harder, lol.

What is the bedding procedure? I noticed one of my brakes squeeks lightly. I typically drive it somewhat hard but hey we can't beat on these beasts all day every day can we?!

WD-40 takes care of most squeaks :) J/K
